Vulcan Oral History Project

by Vulcan Support. Posted to category: Education

The Vulcan Oral History Project is an exciting new partnership project with the Imperial War Museum London.
The aim of the project is to gather a collection of oral histories covering all aspects of the Vulcan including design, engineering and operations throughout her life with particular reference to the history of Vulcan XH558.

These oral histories will be used to support the broadest educational uses by both the Vulcan to the Sky Trust and the Imperial War Museum.

The Imperial War Museum has committed to take responsibility for the long term preservation of the archives.

Do you have interesting recollections associated with the Vulcan you would like to share?

Please contact Miriam Tong Education Manager

on 0116 247 9942.

In the first instance Miriam is gathering together details from prospective interviewees, many of whom it is hoped may visit the Vulcan to the Sky Trust stand at some of the forthcoming airshows. It is anticipated that those selected for interviewing will then be contacted in the coming months and mutually convenient dates, times and places will be arranged for the oral history gathering interviews to be held.

Miriam said "We are absolutely delighted to have received such positive support from the Imperial War Museum. With their already extensive sound archive we will benefit hugely in having their expertise and guidance on this ambitious project which should provide a lasting legacy for everyone to access and enjoy. Sound Archivist Richard McDonough of IWM has said "We are really pleased to support this important project to create an oral history portrait of the aircraft and those associated with her operation."
